The duality of space, its complexity and its simplicity, have been a constant source of inspiration for my work. My paintings strive to create a sense of place beyond illusion using diagrammatic systems – grids, mazes, plans – where one may choose to view the space depicted as a microcosm, a macrocosm or both. In the 21st century advanced technology enhances our traditional methods of perception and offers new vantage points from which we are able to ‘see.’ Using the visual language of maps as an armature, these paintings embrace real and imagined spaces attempting to address both the expansive and conflicting strictures of our society. By combining fluid linear elements with geometric diagrams, I attempt to reflect and underscore the structure imposed on society and nature and to expose the sense of underlying chaos beneath these boundaries.
